We All Knew it Would be ‘The Lizard’
As the information keeps coming out, it’s pretty crystal clear who the Spiderman villain will be even if it isn’t “official”, and it’s one I wanted since the first movie came out before this reboot. The Lizard. Supporting actor C. Thomas Howell mentioned in an interview that the movie’s villain is indeed the Lizard. While he was telling everyone about the not really new news, he give us some spoiler-riffic information about the movie as well.
“I play a construction worker whose son is caught in the middle of a battle between the Lizard and Spider-Man on the Manhattan bridge. Spider-Man helps me get my son back from this perilous situation. There is some payback there at the end of the movie. Spider-Man is kind of hurting. I help him when all of the other people won’t. Part of the story is, the nation thinks he might be a bad guy. They don’t know what to think. Because of my experience on the bridge with my kid, I know he is a good guy. I pitch in and help out at the end. That is the best way.”
While I’ll say we’re not CRAZY excited for this movie, since I know a couple of us think Spiderman is a crap superhero who can’t let an old aunt move on with her life while he’s got some prime women jonesing for him. Heck, I’m not even sure if I’ll see this one, I’m over the whole Spiderman renaissance.
